Today, in London, Samsung just unveiled their most anticipated flagship, the Samsung Galaxy S III. The handset includes a 4.8” Super AMOLED1280 x 720 resolution with Gorilla Glass technology II, Quad-core Exynox 1.4GHz CPU, 1GB RAM and dedicated graphic processor; 16GB or 32GB versions and other high end specs you should expect in a top of the line handset.
Instead of emphasizing on the specs, Samsung has added on many in-house software features along with an exclusive Flipboard version for Android that differentiate with other handsets.
Samsung introduces ‘S Voice’ on the Galaxy S III, a Siri-like voice command that is capable of taking commands without the need of pushing any button. To wake the phone up and activate the voice sensor, you simply say "Hi Galaxy!" and the phone wakes up; You can send email, text, check on the weather, launch camera app, volume controls, etc…
When texting to someone, raise the phone to your ear, the handset launches the telephone app and automatically calls the person you were texting.
The Galaxy S III comes with an NFC chip that allows you transfer photo or video to other Galaxy S III device by putting the phones together, S Beam uses a combination of the NFC technology and Wi-Fi Direct.
